JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 6 – YOGA DAY 37 :: get out

6 Feb

Day 37. Out. Side.

It’s amazing what happens when you get out. Get out of your house, get outside, get out of your own way.

As we wait for the car part to arrive for the Beetle we find ourselves arriving in our own backyard. As in taking to the streets. Walking places. Good old fashioned fresh air. And guess what we found?

A Park! With tennis courts!

Like ….RIGHT behind us

….With a Labyrinth…

…So we walked it

…And in the center we met some new friends (and learned a few new tips about the town we live in!)

…Then before we left I did a little yoga
(You know… because…when in Rome… or the center of a Labrynth)

But possibly the best find of the day was when Justin spotted this…

Looks “lichen” a red heart to me!

As we left Justin said… “See… if the car didn’t break down maybe we wouldn’t have discovered this!”

Yes… behold. A park. With tennis courts. And a labyrinth. And really nice people. And red-shaped hearts poking out of the ground. Like it was built just for us.

Serendipity? Maybe.
Coincidence? Possibly.
Worth it? Absolutely.  

Like I said yesterday….Be. Hold.
And now I say…Get. Out!

More tomorrow.

2014 BLOG – DAY 102 :: go outside …it’s beautiful

13 Apr

We are officially outside. It feels like summer here. The days are warm and the nights are getting longer.

So much warmer and longer that we are now eating outside by candlelight.

It reminds me that there is nothing more beautiful that nature.

More tomorrow.

BLOG – GIFT DAY 305 :: what have you gained?

1 Nov

It is officially November. Welcome. 
We started off the month with a sunny, 70-degree day.

As I sat in my office I couldn’t wait to go outside. My body was screaming at me to move. To do something. Anything.

You see, I have gained a lot over this year. For starters, a new address on the west coast, a new lease on life with my thyroid being surgically removed, and now, I have officially gained a few new pounds.

As my pants get tighter and tighter I am getting more and more motivated to MOVE THAT BUS!

I begged Justin to go for a walk with me. He refused. Countless times. Then he told me to make sure I walked for an hour. I rolled my eyes and took to the streets by myself.

Somehow underneath the bright, shining, November sunshine I finally found a walking path worth waiting for…

It winds all along the waterfront. And it is beautiful.

As I huffed and puffed my way over the river and through the woods, I realized that I haven’t really given this new town of ours a fighting chance. As I huddle in the comfort of my office I have missed out on a few gems…. and one is right down the street!

When I returned home in an exuberant daze from a mouthful of fresh air and a camera full of new photos I spotted Justin in the driveway.

With two new bikes!

“What are you doing” I asked him confused but now fully understanding why he required I leave the house ‘for an hour’….


We officially have new bikes. And it immediately took me back to where this whole Bike Saga began.

It seems I have now gained a new, pink bike with a basket (and coffee cup holder!).

The good news…. this bike is perfect for me. The seat is comfy. The color is perfect. The basket is convenient. The cup holder is lovely!

My other bike (the one we left smashed on the highway in our cross-country drive) was a mountain bike. Sure, it was a great bike by all specs and standards.

But this one is even better because it’s perfect for me. It suits my personality. It fits. (Did I mention the seat is comfy??!!)

And it was a surprise.
As if someone was saying “welcome home.”

More tomorrow.
Lovemore {fearless}
